Balboa Island is counting down. Just 5 more days till Christmas…are you done shopping?  If not, don’t worry, Balboa offers a unique and diverse shopping experience. As Balboa’s Christmas spirit sweeps over you like the tides of the bay, you will in fact find that perfect gift.

Balboa Island is known around the world for its holiday spirit. You are guaranteed to feel the festive atmosphere as it surrounds you. Wherever you turn, you will find Christmas spirit that ranges from Fashion Island’s cut tree (the nation’s tallest) to the one so beautifully decorated at the Fire Station. “The Joys of Christmas Toys”, this years boat parade is sure to showcase some of the Island’s biggest toys of all. You will be amazed at what Scarpa’s Gondola an eight canoes have morphed into.

Here on Balboa, we are in fact missing a Winter Wonderland element…..snow! So, as the eastern seaboard begins digging and shoveling nearly two feet of cold, wet, heavy snow, we will use a small bucket and spade to build sandmen adorned with scarves.
